Here are five ACC games to remember when picking games against the spread this college football season:
October 17- Pittsburgh at Georgia Tech: Georgia Tech will be a favorite when they host Pittsburgh here. The spot is tough for the Yellow Jackets with a game at Clemson the week before and at home tilt against Florida State the week after. Pittsburgh has to make a long trip to Atlanta but I can see them covering the spread as underdogs.
October 17- Virginia Tech at Miami: Miami plays Florida State the week before in Tallahassee. The Hurricanes have lost by double digits in the last two seasons the week after playing the Seminoles. This will likely be built into the spread but still like Virginia Tech here.
October 31- Clemson at North Carolina State: Clemson’s game of the year is when they host Florida State a week later. This could be a tricky spot for the Tigers against an improved North Carolina State team.
November 7- North Carolina State at Boston College: A week after playing a home game against Clemson, North Carolina State travels to Boston College. They also play Florida State the week after. Really tough spot for the Wolfpack and I would take a look at Boston College.
November 14- Pittsburgh at Duke: Pittsburgh plays rival Notre Dame the week before at home. They host Louisville the week after. Sets up nicely for Duke to get a home win and cover.
